Culture as a Field Formation

Abstract: The article substantiates the author's hypothesis that exists a cultural field, in many respects similar to the biological field. I.e. cultures have a certain energy potential which has not been systematically explored yet. Within this field cultures perform nonlocal interactions and exchange socio-cultural experience.
Key words: culture, energy field, evolution, nonlocal mental interactions.

[2] See e.g.: Pierce J.Ch. Biology of Transcendence. Moscow: Gayatri, 2006.
[3] When I speak here about the form of passing on experience, I consciously avoid using the word “direct”, since this word will be used to refer to completely different form, which is far more “direct”.

[6] Of course, we do not use this term in its parascientific understanding.

[8] I do not want to dwell on the theory of torsion fields, which is odious in the eyes of academic science. And it is not because of its odium, but because it is too handy for “clearing” the barrier between empirical and spiritual worlds. Thus, the gap between microworlds in this theory is removed with suspicious ease, and of course by all the same "universal" information interactions.

[10] I do not review the theories that grasp the nettle and declare with exceptional ease that “there is universal cosmologic torsion field that provides nonlocal and atemporal information interaction between all the objects in the Universe” (Leskov L.V. Five Ssteps Beyond the Horizon. Moscow: Economics, 2003. P. 60)
 [11] Evolutionary theories, of course, offer lots of various points of view on this matter. See, e.g.: Pelipenko A.A. Culture and Meaning. Pelipenko A.A. // Selected Works on Theory of Culture. Moscow: Soglasie-Artem, 2014.
[12] Rudnev V.P. Out of Reality: On Philosophy of Text. II. Moscow: Agraf, 2000. P. 15.
[13] It is remarkable that the concept of brain as a kind of filter protecting a human from, as they put it now, transpersonal psychic influences, can be found as early as in N.I. Pirogov’s works.

[16] This brings to mind Hegel's definition of quality as identity equal to the being of an object.

[21] The use of term “anchor” herein is not strict and it should not be associated with neuro-linguistic programming lexicon.
[22] The word “hallucination” is not quite right. Hallucination in the strict sense does not imply something caused by external influence, but in this case that is exactly what happens.
